I would be grateful if someone could help me with a question I have.
We are thinking of moving to Welsh Road, Childer Thornton. Our eldest daughter, should be capable of getting a reasonable mark in the 11+ exam, and hopefully with some tutoring, this ought to make it more likely. She would not be due to sit the exam for a couple of years yet, but we thought we should start thinking about it now.
I am not 100% sure on how catchment areas work. I have checked on google maps and the driving distance to Wirral Grammar School for girls is 5.6miles, 6.2miles, 6.4 miles depending on the route your choose.
However the house we are looking at is in the Cheshire West and Chester council area, not in the Wirral council area.
Will this fact mean that our daughter would be less likely to get in to the grammar school than someone that is closer and within the Wirral council area?
If Wirral Grammar school for girls is not an option, I cannot seem to find any other grammar schools that are closer, or have a missed one?
Thanks for any help in advance.
